Merry Christmas, "Deer"!!
19 Days and Counting! :) In years past, I have tried to be making CHRISTmas cards all through the year, but this year I did not do well with that at all!! So I decided to cheat... we are sending picture cards to most people and the cards I did make will go to a special few.
This card was inspired by this one I saw on Pinterest. Mine falls far short of that beauty, but I like it anyway. I think mine is more on the masculine side. Better ribbon and cord would help. Next time!
I used Holiday Deer SVG Cuts from Doodle Pantry. I just used the cut, but these SVG's work with Holly Stag and Merry Deer. I just have a Cricut E so print and cut is too much work. :/
The gold cardstock is from a 12x12 DCWV "Metallic" that I've had forever! It is the same paper for the bottom panel and the deer but I guess the angle of the light on the card makes it look different.
I used up some scraps of ribbon and cord. The sentiment is from My Craft Spot "Joy to the World" and is heat embossed with gold. I tried something I read recently (can't remember where). They suggested using the heat gun under the paper for a smoother "melting" of the embossing powder. I don't heat emboss as much as I dry emboss, so I'm not sure it make a huge difference but it does look nice up close.
